A 25 year old man from Manchester has claimed victory against Razor Ruddock after scoring 14 penalties against the football legend in the city centre last night. The winner, Callam Gardner, will now walk away with £100 for every penalty scored at this year’s Euros.
LeoVegas.com organised the tournament to celebrate the launch of its new Sportsbook offering, LeoVegas Sport.
To enter, hopefuls got in touch with @LeoVegasUK stating why they should have the chance to compete. Ten lucky finalists were selected and invited to Manchester PowerLeague to take part in the knockout competition.
The victor Gardner said: “I just want to say thanks so much to LeoVegas for letting me take part in such a great event and to have had the chance to play against a footballing legend was amazing. To have won just made the night event better.”
Ex-professional footballer Neil ‘Razor’ Ruddock was in goal for the event to show his support for the Sportsbook launch. He said: “It was great working with LeoVegas on such a fun event but I’ve definitely got a new found respect for goal keepers who had to face me running at them!
“I’m looking forward to the Euros and seeing how much Callam wins. He’s a superb player and definitely deserved the win.”
LeoVegas UK Country Manager, Shenaly Amin, stated: “We’re really excited about the launch of LeoVegas Sport and wanted to celebrate by getting the public involved by giving them the chance to experience the thrill of penalty taking.
“We decided to work with Neil Ruddock to bring some fun and excitement to the event, and it looks like a great time was had by all. Congratulations to Callam on the win and thanks again for showing us your penalty shootout skills!”
